End Date: September 2020


This research is on nanotechnology-related projects at Howard University. Students were able to use lithography to prepare nanotechnology samples. They also had hands-on experience with various instrument techniques, including Scanning Electron Microscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, FTIR spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry. The students synthesized a variety of organic precursors that will be used for the synthesis of nanomaterials by chemical vapor deposition method. Three Gallaudet students participated in an internship under the supervision of Dr. Sabila. This internship also tested a new template that could be used for future research collaborations between Gallaudet and other universities where Deaf and hard of hearing Gallaudet students work in a hearing research environment.
